The name C-function originally referred to what John Maynard Keynes called "Consumption Functions." These days the "C" is synonymous with community. C-Functions usually take place in Walker Memorial's Morss Hall, but can also be held off-campus.

Each C-function features different cuisines, arts, and activities based on the theme of the night. The Office of Student Life has put on Japan C-functions, LGBTQ C-Functions, as well as Sustainability C-functions to advance the community building mission.

C-Functions run on select Thursday evenings throughout the academic year and are co-hosted by Student Life, the Sloan Experience Committee (under the Sloan Senate), and a club.

C-Function Application
Students must submit a Proposal Form in order to be considered to lead a C-Function. Applications to host a C-function open in July and close late August.

On-Campus C-Functions Space

  • Held in Walker Memorial's Morss Hall.
  • Two weeks before the event, you must provide slquestions@mit.edu with a diagram or floorplan of your event set-up.
  • Morss Hall (Walker Memorial) requires a $275 cleaning and set-up fee. Nothing can be left overnight. Lecterns, tables, chalk or white boards, staging, and various other items are available for use.
  • The Sloan Educational Services office (SES) will generally accommodate a few key dates of rehearsals in the week before the C-Function. These rehearsals have been approved for the basement classrooms in E51 (pending availability); we cannot accommodate requests with extended time needs, nor are our classrooms practice rooms.
  • In order to request classroom space for a C-Function rehearsal, please have your club's Space Reserver submit the MIT Sloan Classroom Request Form.

Off-Campus C-Function Venue

  • Select a venue (usually a restaurant or bar).
  • Remember, you cannot sign any agreements or contracts! Contact the Student Life Office.
